I hate to be a curmudgeon - no, really! - but paedophilia isn't actually
illegal under US law. Not unless you act upon the impulse. I mean, the bible
says it's adultery if you look at someone not your spouse with lust in your
heart, but I think US law demands the action as well as the thought.

And isn't it legal to smoke dope in the US under some circumstances?

I'm just wondering where to draw the line, and whether it should be straight
or curly-wurly.

Pete, anxious to comply
